Though Mornington Pinot Noir hasn’t turned up on the exam (only Pinot Gris), the quality of wines like this suggest it’s possible. Pronounced rich, ripe – stewed wild strawberry – fruit, with forest floor and caramel touches. Clay / earth mineral, with oak spice. Hint of herb and smoke. Sweet / sour fruit – higher acidity than the ripe fruit would suggest (acidified?) – strawberry character. Cranberry touches and herb. Touch of mocha. Brighter acidity than Marlborough, and more stewed fruit.
